CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE & BLOOD LIPID MANAGEMENT
Heart fitness you can LIVE with.
Have you been diagnosed with:
High blood pressure?
Elevated cholesterol or triglycerides?
High blood sugar?
Are you at risk for cardiovascular disease due to family history?
These can be scary things to hear. At Harmonic Nutrition and Wellness, we can help you respond knowledgeably instead of reacting out of fear or – worse yet – feeling paralyzed into doing nothing. We’ll help you understand your options and work with you to develop a realistic plan to significantly reduce your risk of coronary artery disease and stroke.
I hold a degree in Exercise Physiology, which enables me to promote health fitness in hospitals and corporate settings. Let me put that same expertise to work for you, designing a training program you can LIVE with for cardiac rehabilitation and optimizing your cardiac fitness.
Cholesterol and Blood Lipid Management
Heart disease continues to be the number one killer in the U.S., killing more Americans per year than cancer. And we now understand it’s not just a “man’s disease.” Worldwide, the death rate is 8.6 million women per year, causing a third of all deaths in women.
No one can guarantee that it won’t happen to you, but there are many things you can do to lessen your risk. We can recommend many highly effective treatments and prevention strategies to dramatically reduce your chances of developing heart disease. Key factors in our protocol include interventions focused on normalizing
- blood lipids (LDL, HDL and triglycerides)
- glucose intolerance
- blood pressure
